Entertainment Arts

Storytelling is at the heart of your role as an artist, whether you’re venturing into animation, video or games. Our program prepares you to join the next generation of storytellers while teaching you the latest software used in the entertainment industry.

Choose from three concentrations:

Animation

Animation introduces you to the art of sequential storytelling and utilizes stop-motion, material-based and computer-generated (CG) imagery techniques.

Game

Game concentration teaches you how to produce 2-D and 3-D images and concepts for games.

Video

Video can help you learn how to use video as an exploratory and expressive medium through narrative, experimental and documentary forms.

What Sets Us Apart?

Direct Contacts to Industry
It’s all about who you know, especially in Hollywood. Whether you want to work for Pixar, do CG graphics for major motion pictures, design the next character for a Rock Star game or direct the next Oscar-winning production, CCS students have to have direct ties to industry by way of our alumni. Within CCS’ Entertainment Arts department, you will be taught by faculty who have worked on films such as Wall-E, designed for major video games and have been a part of major Hollywood productions.

Customizable Curriculum
All fields within the entertainment industry require different talents and skill sets. At CCS, you will have the opportunity to customize your curriculum to your liking. Do you want to learn how to animate with a strong focus on high-end computer-generated images? Are you looking to design video games with a focus on character development? Here, you’ll have the chance to create your own pathway.

Focus on Concept
The benefit of studying Entertainment Arts at an art and design college is the focus on the creative process and the concept. At CCS, our process first starts with the creative and then moves on to character performance and emotion.

Industry-Grade Equipment
We’ve invested in top-of-the-line equipment, knowing that it’s vital that students learn on the same equipment that they will eventually use in studios around the world.
